Vote for me and I promise Pot, in every pot!!!

Seriously there are stories that are drug related, the Mexican drug war for one... last year here in Albuquerque they found 13 murdered women buried out on the west mesa... one theory is they forced hookers to be drug mules then killed them so they couldn't tell...

Not all stories are bad either, I remember reading about this older lady up in Canada who wanting a little bedroom action slipped an entire bottle of Viagra into her elderly husbands food... poor old dude had himself a stroke...

It won't be bad as long as the mods keep on top of it

I'm not saying the board shouldn't exist, I just don't want it to dominate ATS as it has all morning. I understand that there is conspiracy to discuss invilving drugs, and I hope we can stay on topic.

What worries me is what has happened to political discussion on ATS. Most threads are fine, but every day there is one that has no business on ATS and is blatent political baiting. I don't want to see that in the drug forums as it would cheapen the value of ATS

Interesting..

Although I dont think the "drug" convo will evolve into a left/right/centrist argument

I guess it'll simmer down once alot of the threads have been posted. It's a new forum on the boards, and there's alot of people who have something to say on the conspiracies surrounding drug issues.

You may be right, I wonder if the fact that the ats firehouse link is not functioning has anything to do with the multitudes of drug threads, sounds like a conspiracy!

So let me get this straight, people are not allowed to talk about personal drug use or advocate legalization of drugs. So are we allowed to talk of conspiracy s as to why drugs are made illegal. Example, Marijuana banned because hemp production was a threat to the emerging "wonder" fabric nylon.

Save the non-conspiracy stuff for BTS, ATS is for conspiracy, or at least it should be.

-E-


Really!?! You don't see the conspiracy in the astoundingly unethical and anti-freedom laws against drugs in general and marijuana specifically???

Wow. Lessee... MJ has never killed anyone, can treat a wide variety of illnesses, and promotes loving behavior. And Obama flatly said we were not going to make it legal and tax it "just yet..." Why?

[sigh] This topic is RIFE with conspiracy. It belongs here as much as any other topic.

I believe you mis-read the OP, I was stating that I hope ATS doesn't get bogged down with NON-conspiracy related drug threads, like the political forums have become bogged down with non-conspiracy related political threads.

I'm not one for drug use of any kind, whether legal or not, prescribed by a physician or self-prescribed, obtained OTC or at a Co-Op. However, I do understand that there are many that prefer using medication to alleviate their suffering. Who am I to judge them for that personal choice?

However, as far as discussing the non-recreational use of drugs, for a long time we've had to dance gingerly around the issue here on ATS for quite some time. Our hands have been tied for a while and having them finally unbound was inevitably going to open the floodgates, at least initially.

Given time, it won't be any more active than any other Forum Topic on ATS, but today it will undoubtedly be the Topic Du Jour, only because it was once Taboo and so many people have been looking forward to this day on ATS.

And whether we would like to admit it or not, the reality is that Drugs do factor into so many subjects. From Politics, to Criminal Justice, Intelligence Agencies, Dictatorships, Violence, Domestic Policy, and even several Conspiracies. Having an outlet where these can be openly discussed without fear of the thread being locked or deleted I feel is important to the growth of ATS.

Times they are a changin' and ATS must change with them. Some illicit Drugs will be tomorrow's legal substances while today's legal substances (like tobacco, sugar, and coffee) may very likely become illicit Drugs of tomorrow. It is important that ATS tow the line and not passively allow the promotion or advocating of the use of illicit substances, but it is long overdue that the discussion of non-recreational drug use is finally open to discussion.

I think it's a blip and the novelty will soon wear off...

Give it two weeks, it'll be comfortable, old ATS again...

I can't even find the new forum. MysterE, since you can't pull your eyes away from it can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

And to the other whiner, idoit: If you didn't like it why did you start that stupid thread?

Theres another side to this too. Aside from the conspiracy of drugs being suppressed, especially the naturally grown ones that should belong to the people, like all things should belong to the people, and the fascism involved in controlling natural things, or people, and I really believe this is worthy as a conspiracy.

Theres another conspiracy. Should the governments suddenly legalize pot for example, just before they try and visibley enorce a one world govenrment, am I alone in thinking that the "peace pipe" may prohibit people from rebelling as they should and must do?
Thats another conspiracy too.

I wonder why there is suddenly this new focus on it at this time?

My apologies. I am unsure what wouldn't fall into the conspiracy niche - except for personal lauding of drug experience, which is already forbidden.

im sure it will be full for a while, people on here have been waiting for a long time it appears to get some of this stuff out so most likely you will have to let the new wear off

All you have to do is stay away from these forum. There is plenty of choice here on ats.

I notice the drug forum is very dark colour font, is there a reason for this?

Ugh, yeah. I'm already sick of seeing most of the new threads being in the drug forum. I don't view 'em because I'm just gonna assume it's gonna be like being at a Tool concert. That's a thought I could very much do without.

Oh well, I guess there's not much you can do.

Im just sad that all of the great stuff I wrote about eliciting a '___' response through meditation and lucid dreaming was wiped out. If the alternative substances board is still available can anyone show me where it is?

I was a little surprised too by how many threads popped up within a couple hours of the new policy regarding drug related issues!

Then I realized that a lot of people probably were just waiting for the day with some topic of their own interest and the day they were waiting for finally came.

I imagine it will taper down farely quick. If they closed the 9-11 forum for say six months the second they opened it back up everyone with a new theory would be starting a thread in droves.

Nothing to be alarmed about really. Drugs are a big part of our world both legal and illegal and I believe the site owners when they say they won't allow them to be turned into an advocacy for illegal consumption or scientific research on illegal consumption.

In closing what would you do if I sang out a tune believe me that it happens all the time, what do you see when you turn out the lights I don't know but I am sure that it's mine, we get by with a little help from our friends, we get high with a little help from our friends, YOU ought to try because we are all your frie-ie-ie-ie-ie-ie-nds!

Thank you, thank you very much good night ATS.
